    I honestly don't understand the purpose of this picture other than ego stroking. The accompanying description reinforces this theory. [​IMG] "- wedding band in 18k WG with D flawless diamonds" Okay.

    if we submit lifestyle photos taken with crappy cellphone cameras, reflected on dirty mirrors would it make it better?

    Some photographs are crappier than others. Nice assist from the gentleman in the stall.

    Hell, I can't even see the tiny little diamonds!

    And hopefully that band belongs to his wife. A man shouldn't be wearing diamonds set in a ring.

    I always love the remark made by Walter Hoving when a man demanded a diamond ring at Tiffany ... "What you buy is your business, what we sell is ours."

    I miss the term prol.

    It's a great way to be racist/classist, without being racist. Urban/city prole, country prole. And it can go both ways, bourgeoise can be equally disparaging. They're the assholes with money but no taste or class. The words are too ridiculous to be taken seriously, so nobody will be offended.

    A few threads down is "At what age did you/do you project you will become a millionaire?"

    Oh, the irony.

    So that's how it's spelled. I imagine I only used/heard this term in speech ... way back in "high" school.

    Thought I'd add some fuel to the fire...just a couple of pics from my other "home"...Peninsula Beverly Hills:

    My "crew" poolside in my cabana:
    [​IMG]

    I'm addicted to "high tea" and would enjoy it everyday if I could find people with enough free time:
    [​IMG]

    Ummm...just because she likes this pic. [​IMG]

    I do wonder what the people at the Veuve event across the pool must have been thinking

    Alright...carry on...
